Pickup wiring is one of those items that is worth knowing, especially if your bass has two pickups or split type pickups. Most pickups are wired in parallel configuration to the output jack. See the diagram below for two Jazz Bass pickups wired in parallel. This is normal configuration for Jazz bass and two pickup basses, like the G&L 2500.
Once I chose a color I coated the body with MinWax Pre-Stain. This water-based compound fills in the pours of uneven hard woods and allows for a more uniform and even stain across the whole body. Please make sure to always follow the directions on the can for best results! After drying I started to stain the body. Again, I can not stress how important it is to work in a safe and well ventilated area. While it maybe temping to do this in a more comfortable area, you don't want to expose yourself to fumes and suffer the side effects! I hung and finished the body in my apartment patio closet which was perfect for shelter and ventilation. Remember, if you find a coat is unacceptable you can always sand it away with a low grit sandpaper. However, it will require the same low to high sanding process, and if your not careful it the sanding can erode angles and curves.
